Chimney Mountain, a 2.5 mile out and back trail, is a unique climb in the Indian Lake region that offers beautiful perspectives on the surrounding land, including King’s Flow. Please note that the trailhead is on private property, so mind the $2 parking fee and stay on the path. Starting off with gently rolling terrain, the path turns steeper as your draw near the summit. Toward the top and when the trail levels out, there is a spur path that heads to the distinctive rock formations that give Chimney Mountain its name. From the chimney rock to the system of caves and rock crevasses, there are plenty of neat spots to explore along the trail! Not far beyond the chimney formations, the official summit rising at 2,700 ft above sea level provides beautiful 360 degree views of the central Adirondacks.
